My Staples shredder will work in reverse just fine but it will not move forward, rendering it unable to shred anything.


They do this when they get dirty. There is a sensor that tells when it is full, the sensor gets paper dust on it and wont work in forward.
You need to clean it real well. If that does not help then the issue is something else like sensor failure.

What wrong if my shredder will not shred paper it will go in reverse but forward


I answered this a few days ago.

My feeling is that your switch is faulty. Does it have a three position switch
Forward - OFF - Reverse

If so, the switch is faulty or a wire has come off it.

My Executive Machines EPS 1200X shredder works in reverse, but does not shred.


there should be a forward/ reverse switch that is used to unjam paper being shredded. check that
if it is automatic then check for paper stuck in the shredder causing the reverse action.

The shredder only goes in reverse. I did oil it, but it doesn't work.


did you try to fix the forward problem by oiling it? That would be my first choice. The Forward and reverse switch would be my first thing to check to make sure the switch is working. Next would be the actual motor to see if it's getting power to go forward.
Oiling it won't fix the forward problem unless it was somehow stuck which would be unlikely since it goes in reverse.
Sorry I couldn't give you more help with this.
Good luck.

Infoguard shredder SX-102 runs in reverse but not forward


Shredders have a manual switch for reverse..... if you have tried this, then there could be a possibility that the switch has dust of paper in it and the contacts not making contact for the reverse cycle... or the switch is faulty. If you have any electrical knowledge, you can do a test with an ohm meter for continuity in the reverse mode.... or remove the switch and blow it out with an air compressor. If you mess with electrical, ALWAYS REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE SHREDDER!!!
Good luck.........

20822 Department shredder


The motor has a feature to go forward and reverse and thus the forward (paper in) control has been compromised. The problem can be the switches. A rocker switch when in one position may control the forward motion or backward motion, therefore if the switch fails only one side is working. Then there may be two small switches on the so called rollers (Cutters) that sense the input of paper into the cutters thereby starting the motion and shredding procedure. If a sensing device is broken, only the unaffected switch works. Repair is usually expensive, thus a replacement is in order.

Fellowes P35C works in reverse but not forwards


In forward operation, a detector senses the presence of material in the feeder and turns it on. Reverse operation is selected by switch position; no sensor is involved. I would bet that if you remove power and turn the shredder upside down you will find bits of shredded paper clogging your shredder, particularly in the center area where the detector is located. After thorough removal of debris, you should be back to normal operation

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing
